Piano Lessons Brighton:
I have been professionally teaching piano for over 10 years now. I have a relaxed and patient approach to teaching, and welcome all abilities and styles. Every student is different so I create my lessons around you, and can teach whatever you’re interested in learning.
I can show you how to read sheet music, improvise using chords and melodies, get to grips with rhythm and develop a keen ear to tone and sound. I can teach you excellent technique for the style of your choice, and will also encourage you to understand the theory behind the music, without it becoming dull or complicated.
I am very passionate about Music Theory, and have a 100% pass rate for my students taking their Grade 5 theory.
I also offer crash courses and last minute ‘cramming sessions’ if you’ve left it a bit late to study!
Song writing and Composition:
I have been writing music for over 20 years now, and have been working as a performer for 10 of those years, so song writing and composition is something I am very confident to teach.
I can show you how to notate your own music, by using Sibelius software, or hand-written sheet music, as well as guitar tablature and chords.
I have a lot of experience in song-writing so can help you put your ideas into music, working on lyrics and structure. I can also help you create harmonies and instrument parts for any type of song/composition, including scoring for a full orchestra.
As a performing professional I can offer advice on how to get your music heard, distribution, band management, social media and general tips for your music business. Please get in touch with me for more information on this.
Weddings & Other Events:
I am also available to play at private functions – weddings, parties and other events. I have an extensive repertoire of classical and contemporary pieces and songs. I can also provide vocals and strings. Please contact me for more details on this.
